This thoroughly revised edition of Transactional Analysis Counselling introduces the theory and practice of TA - which integrates cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic theories within a humanistic philosophy - from a unique relational perspective. While most TA books focus on one field, this approach demonstrates the benefits of TA across a wide variety of helping settings, business and management, education and coaching as well as counselling. Case studies from a variety of contexts bring TA to life for trainees in any of these disciplines, and the accessible, engaging writing style makes difficult concepts understandable for undergraduates and postgraduates alike. Bringing their book into the twenty-first century, expert authors Phil Lapworth and Charlotte Sills provide a brief history of TA followed by individual chapters on the concepts and techniques used. Each chapter is devoted to one concept and includes a detailed definition and description, and suggestions for application in practice. Exercises for student, practitioner and client, boxed summaries, diagrams, checklists and sources of further reading make this the ideal text for use in training. This book is an essential companion for those embarking on specialist TA courses or studying TA as part of wider training, while those who want simply to integrate TA into their work with people can dip into it as suits their needs.

Originally published in 1961, this book outlines a new, unified system of individual and social psychiatry that were introduced in the United States around that time with remarkable success in various hospitals and other psychiatric establishments. Essentially designed for group therapy, this approach is now used by institutions, group workers, and in private practice with neurotics, psychotics, sexual psychopaths, psychosomatic cases, and adolescents. Transactional analysis begins its program by initiating the individual patients into the theory upon which the treatment is based. First attaining a measure of self-knowledge through private sessions with the analyst, the patient then meets with other patients in group therapy, participating in a series of personally meaningful relation-ships in which he becomes increasingly aware of the cause and nature of his illness, preparing at the same time to overcome it. “A comprehensive method of treatment that has no precedent in its concreteness of structure without at the same time diminishing the dynamic quality of the treatment....No one to my knowledge has presented such a new approach.”—Dr. Milton Schwebel, Professor of Education, New York University

Organizational Transactional Analysis is a discipline whose focus is on enabling effective communication at all levels of the organization. It looks at development and change from the individual, team, department and organizational levels. This book, and Organizational TA as a whole, operates from an assumption of health – this is a very different approach from other communication methodologies which tend to focus on the problems. TA focuses on building on what is already working, rather than what isn't. From their many years of experience, Anita Mountain and Chris Davidson are convinced that TA offers everyone within the workforce different options on how to relate. Working Together offers up-to-date theory developed by the authors through their extensive knowledge of TA and of the business world. The clear explanations and diagrams in the book outline how you can develop and maintain effective communication and be aware of the processes involved in carrying out decisions and strategies. With chapters on how to apply TA in the workplace Working Together is a down-to-earth yet intelligent read and an important resource for those who wish to improve the quality of relationships and improve productivity. It will be of value to individuals, leaders and managers at all levels. Whether the issue is emotional intelligence, stress, poor communication or different departmental/regional perspectives, this book offers a toolkit of resources to support the people processes aspects of the business.

'Toad', the famous character in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows is in a very depressed state and his good friends Rat, Mole and Badger, are 'worried that he might do something silly'... First they nursed him. Then they encouraged him. Then they told him to pull himself together... Finally, Badger could stand it no longer. That admirable animal, though long on exhortation, was short on patience. 'Now look here Toad, this can go on no longer', he said sternly. 'There is only one thing left. You must have counselling!' Robert de Board's engaging account of Toad's experience of counselling will capture the imagination of the growing readership of people who are interested in counselling and the counselling process. Written as a real continuation of life on the River Bank, Toad and his friends come to life all over again. Heron, the counsellor, uses the language and ideas of transactional analysis as his counselling method. Through the dialogues which make up the ten sessions, or chapters of the book, Toad learns how to analyse his own feelings and develop his emotional intelligence. He meets his 'rebellious child' and his 'adult' along the way, and by the end of the book, as debonair as ever he was, is setting out on a completely new adventure. As readers learn about Toad, so they can learn about themselves and be encouraged to take the path of psychological growth and development. Best-selling author, Robert de Board says: 'Toad's experiences are based on my own experiences of counselling people over a period of twenty years. Counselling for Toads is really an amalgamation of the many counselling sessions I have held and contains a distillation of the truths I have learnt from practice.' Appropriate for anyone approaching counselling for the first time, whether as a student or as a client, or for the professional counsellor looking for something to recommend to the hesitant, Counselling for Toads will appeal to both children and adults of all ages.

Transactional Analysis (TA) refers to a wide-ranging set of theories about the human personality. It provides an unambiguous and logical framework within which we can understand and analyze ourselves—our motives, our behavior, and our interactions with others. The principles of TA can be applied universally—at home, in the workplace, at clubs and restaurants, at sporting events, in social occasions, and so on.

Winning Hearts and Minds: Transactional Analysis Simplified uses the principles of TA to enable the reader to learn about his or her personality, identify and eliminate certain recurring patterns of harmful behavior that may have become ingrained in the psyche, and discover how to forge and maintain authentic relationships and enrich existing ones. The elegant and lucid theory of TA as set forth in this book has benefited millions of people all over the world as a remarkable means of fostering self-awareness, genuineness, and growth.

When Claude Steiner and the late Eric Berne developed the theory of Transactional Analysis, their basic belief that people were born princes and princess, until their parents turned them into frogs” countered the fundamental principle of psychiatry which asserts that emotional and mental distress comes from within. This theory was further developed in Steiner’s book Games Alcoholics Play. Dr. Berne, in What Do You Say After You Say Hello?, acknowledged Steiner’s important role in the analysis of life scripts” which we choose at an early age and which rule every detail of our lives until our death. In Scripts People Live, Steiner expands upon this belief to show that people are innately healthy but develop a pattern early in life based upon negative or positive influences of those around them. Thus children decide, however unconsciously, whether they will be happy or depressed, winners or failures, strong or dependent, and having decided, they spend the rest of their lives making the decision come true. For those who choose a negative script, the consequences can be disastrous unless they make a conscious decision to change. Steiner’s classic in psychological theory, with a new foreword by the author, offers a hopeful and practical analysis so that we all may rewrite our life scripts and lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
